Home Forums Feature Requests Option to hide/modify field group title


Option to hide/modify field group title

  • This feature request concerns the field group titles. Up until now, when having a regular metabox layout, the field group titles are always displayed above the fields in a bar.

    This is not really a problem, but I have come across some inconveniences on more than one occasion:

    1. Oftentimes, I have field groups that only contain one field or contain some fields that cannot necessarily be grouped under a common title. I would rather have no title on that field group than one that repeats the field name or doesn’t match the field names.

    2. Occasionally, I have field groups that contain almost the same fields for different post types (since it is not possible to have single field conditions matching on post types etc.). They carry the same field group title and are indistinguishable in the overview (other than by the number of their fields).

    Maybe it would be possible to override the displayed group title, even have it set to “none” and do not output the group title bar at all?

  • I’d like this option too, but as a workaround, changing the style in the field group from Standard (WP Metabox) to Seamless (No metabox) hides the field group name.

    We have a naming convention for ACF field groups to keep the groups organized when viewing a list of them. However, those names aren’t always what we want when the entire group gets displayed on a post or page. Would be nice to have this option too.

  • I also want to request this feature. Also having a naming convention and it looks kinda ugly on the backend.

  • The world needs this!

    @sjk1000: Changing to seamless doesn’t seem to work anymore. I think it’s that Gutenberg thingy that is scrambling a lot of things.

    And yes, it would be a nice be able to hide the title 🙂
